This might be a weird question but I hope you have an answer.

Are the U.S. domestic flights have restriction in carrying raw meat (such as ground beef, boneless chicken) in the cabin? I mean, is raw meat considered to be prohibited to carry it in?

    @Karlson I keep it frozen in a small foam box. – MEhsan Sep 4 '15 at 2:54
  • This really isn't that weird -- just imagine someone coming back from an Alaskan hunting trip with a foam cooler full o' elk or w/e on ice. :) – UnrecognizedFallingObject Sep 8 '15 at 17:53

This actually may not be an TSA policy but an airline one. An article in AZ central suggests that not all airline allow frozen meats in carry-ons so you may need to check with the airline that they do.

The same article also suggests possible packing tips for transporting the frozen meats as well.

Personally I would suggest having your meat vacuum packed before freezing it.
